    so my wife was in such a rush today she couldnt wait 5minutes for the fresh line paint to dry, and continued to follow the the paint truck until she could make LEFT turn to proceed to her destination. so now my tacoma is sporting a nice spray or yellow to the underside and fender wells/ mudflaps. i like it but she doesnt, any suggestions as how to remove? i work for public works and we laugh our asses off when we are painting lines , jokes on me i guess....im sure its happened to some other folks so any help/ experience would be appreciated. thanks

    lacquer thinner if it's pretty fresh. just saturate a paper towel and keep it moving. Don't hold it on. It will soften your clear after a little while, so be careful, but it should remove it. Wash with soap when you are done, and re-wax. Done it many times before.
